How can I hang Pictures in a Cat?

Hi, ladies and gentlemen!
I am about to move onto a newly-build Seawind 1160 Lite to live aboard early next year and was wondering how to hang pictures in a boat. Someone suggested to use Velcro but I don't want to glue the fabric onto the walls. What do you suggest?
Thomas

3M Command is your ticket to happiness. It is easily applied, and easily removed without a trace if needed. I use it and I love it.

Re: How can I hang pictures in a cat?

Fireplg, not knowing where you are located, this may be irrelevant, but there is a product here called Blu-tack, which is sort of like silly putty (if you remember that), that you manipulate to activate, then use "dots" of it to stick up whatever you want. Understand that you don't want to screw picture frames through your bulkheads.

PS, by the way, the more info you give CFers about your plans and where you are, the better able they will be to help when you ask. I mention this because we don't know which boat or even which hemisphere you're in. Surely privacy could allow you to give those parameters. Let me apologize in advance if I sound grumpy about that, but sometimes I think you guys hamstring us and then want us to help.

Re: How can I hang pictures in a cat?

Museum Putty, used to secure valuables/breakables that need to stay put.
Has been used on boats offshore and leaves no residue upon removal.
Thinking mostly horizontal applications but vertical should work as well.
Good stuff, check it out.

Right Mark?

I was thinking "nail in the tail" when I see ya beat me to it ! BONUS APPLICATION = You now have a very nice clinometer visible from most anywhere on the boat...

I use the 3M red double sided tape... Not as nice to remove, but don't have to worry about things falling!

Re: How can I hang Pictures in a Cat?

I have all my wall hangings held in place with Blue Tac or equivalent. In extreme heat items some time slip but have held in even the stormiest of conditions. I have Lladro figures held on shelving with Blue Tac and again no failures. It is cheap and much easier to remove than double sided tape.

I use this in the clear version, but the black is stronger than the clear. It is relatively expensive, but pulls right off the teak with no noticeable mark that it was there. We have lots of pictures, clocks, items we want to hold down etc. This stuff is tough! Radio Shack sells it in both clear and black in strips. I bought it that way for years, but found in rolls on Amazon. With the two different rolls, you can cut your pieces to fit your application and the adhesive backing works great on the teak. I have had some on my walls for 12 seasons and still holding strong in temperatures from well over 100 to low 20's.

Re: How can I hang Pictures in a Cat?

We used to have dogs and we hung their pictures on the wall with picture hooks. When we bought our boat we screwed them though the fames to furring strips we'd glued to the bulkheads... I suspect pictures of cats would work the same way? Oh, you meant pictures ON a cat, not OF a cat, never mind...
